About

Peter Hallís magnificent 1992 production of Straussís opera Salome features sensational acting from Maria Ewing who, as the sinister, monstrous heroine of the title, ultimately leaves nothing to the imagination in her Dance of the Seven Veils.

She leads a fine cast including, Michael Devlin as a strong-voiced Jokanaan, Kenneth Riegel as a devilish Herod, Gillian Knight as the depraved Herodias and Robin Leggate as the infatuated Narraboth. The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, in excellent form, is conducted by Edward Downes.

Warning: Contains nudity and scenes of violence.

Cast:
- Salome: Maria Ewing
- Jokanaan: Michael Devlin
- Herod: Kenneth Riegel
- Herodias: Gillian Knight
- Narraboth: Robin Leggate

Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London on 2nd June 1992.

ĎMaria Ewing renews her tour de force performance in the title role, one of extraordinary stamina, range, colour and agility. Ö hers was a feat of high-class singing, her playing of the part taking sensible account of the passage of time, her Salome no sex kitten but an obsessed woman of chilling resolution and conviction.í - Evening Standard
